Another Twitter attack on British diver
British diver Tom Daley, target of a fan's abusive messages, is now the target of an anti-gay Twitter slur.
A Welsh Premier League soccer player has been suspended while the club investigates the message sent to Daley from midfielder Daniel Thomas's phone.
Thomas contends someone was playing a joke with his phone.
The Port Talbot Town club says it is investigating Thomas, the British news agency Press Association reports.
The club said the 28-year-old Thomas told them he "regrettably left his phone unattended and was the victim of a very misguided prank." Thomas will remain suspended during the internal investigation, however, the club said.
Daley, 18, and diving partner Pete Waterfield missed out winning a medal at the Lond Games Olympics when they finished fourth in the 10m synchronised dive on Monday.
A 17-year-old enraged and distraught at Daley's medal loss attacked the diver with Twitter messages and has been arrested.
